Hardware Corrosion Resistant, All Plastic Cam Latch Meets NEMA 4 and IP65 Standards Southco, Inc. has expanded its successful E5 Cam Latch series with a plastic version. The redesigned plastic E5 cam latch features an all plastic, corrosion resistant design that meets NEMA 4 and IP65 standards for water and dust protection, making it well suited for use in highly corrosive environments. The plastic E5 provides corrosion resistance and non-conductive latching for industrial machinery, marine, transportation and electrical enclosures. Like the standard E5 line, the plastic version features a variety of grip lengths and is available in numerous head style options for added security. Additionally, the plastic E5 features the same panel hole prep as the standard series and is available with pre-installed pawl options to minimize installation time. "With its all plastic design and improved corrosion resistance, our newest E5 Cam Latch is a cost effective alternative for a wide variety of applications, offering a highly modular and easy to configure solution for enclosure access," said global product manager Loc Tieu. New Mounting Plate Kits for MetCase Rack Mount Enclosures Mounting plate kits are now available for MetCase's CombiMet range of 19 inch rack mount enclosures. CombiMet is a range of vented, unvented and open rack cases for networking and communications equipment, industrial computers, sound and studio systems, laboratory instruments and control technology. The internal mounting plate kits enable multiple PCBS to be installed in the rack cases. They offer improved stability and, on vented versions, added cooling. Mounting plates are manufactured from aluminum and are available in two sizes: 13.18 by 9.05 by 0.06 inches and 13.18 by 12.99 by 0.06 inches. Each kit includes nine nylon screw pillars (M3 by 10 mm) and 10 screws (M3 x 6 mm CSK). Each plate is pre-drilled with nine countersunk holes as standard. They can also be specified pre-drilled ready for components and also CNC machined with ventilation holes to improve cooling still further. Prices start at $23. Other accessories include PCB mounting pillar kits and rack mounting screw kits. CombiMet's distinctive handles (which come as standard on the cases) can also be specified as accessories for other MetCase and non-MetCase rack mount enclosures. Reliable, Safe Operation in New Amphenol Industrial Power Connectors Amphenol Industrial Products Group has introduced a new generation of industrial power connectors for use in harsh industrial, commercial, data center applications. The IP44 and IP67 rated Amphe-309 provides safe and reliable portable electrical connections for the most extreme environments. Designed for use on construction sites and in commercial and 28 Fall 2015 * www.ElectronicsProtectionMagazine.com agricultural installations as well as in the lighting and audio power industry, the Amphe-309 has a current rating from 16 A up to 125 A, and a maximum operating voltage of 690 VAC or 250 VDC, with low-voltage options as well. These easily-recognizable and interchangeable devices feature a color-coded system that matches amperage and voltage requirements, making them suited for use in the field. Used in extreme climates (both indoor and outdoor), these devices are available in a variety of designs from a simple plug to flexible customer-created combination units. Amphe-309 is designed to withstand vibration, impact, dirt, moisture, corrosive elements as well as wash-downs. ATEX certified options available. Amphenol's Amphe-309 current range covers all clock positions in use and offers low profile, watertight, heavy duty and ATEX solutions. Each connector features a positive locking feature to stop accidental withdrawal or insertion of the pin while under load. Certified by CE, UL, CSA and CCC, Amphe-309 can be used in international and domestic markets. All components, from the plugs and receptacles to the inlets, mechanical interlocks and combination boxes, comply with the requirements of IEC 603 09-1 &2, EN 60 309-1 & 2, BS 4343-2 1992 , and UL 1682 & 1686. Wieland Electric Adds New High Amperage Inserts to revos Power Industrial Connector Wieland Electric Inc. has extended its offering of revos Power hybrid contact inserts for its family of rectangular connectors. Designed specifically for the revos BASIC housings in sizes 16 and 24, the rugged contact inserts are available with power and control terminals in a variety of combinations. "These new hybrid contact inserts give machine and equipment design engineers maximum flexibility in combining power and control connections in the proven revos BASIC rectangular connectors," said Martin Lalonde, application engineer at Wieland Electric. "Designed for industrial and heavy equipment applications, the rugged connector inserts feature captive screws and up to 500 mating cycles." The different contact configurations enable design engineers to select 6, 8 or 12 power contacts for maximum currents of either 40A or 80A, and 2, 4, 12 or 36 control contacts for a maximum current of 10 A. All contacts are rated for 600 V and wires ranging in size from 26 to 4 AWG. The revos connectors are CSA and UL certified, and suitable for type 4 / IP65 applications. VadaTech Releases Two Virtex-7 FPGA Carriers VadaTech has new Virtex-7 690T FPGA carriers in the AMC format. VadaTech's Virtex-7 FPGA carriers utilize the 690T device providing over 693K logic cells and 3600 DSP slices. The AMC516 has banks of 64-bit and 16-bit DDR3 memory and an on-board P2040 PowerPC. The AMC527 is a similar Virtex-7 690T FPGA, except it has three banks of 144 Mb QDR-II memory and does not have a PowerPC. The FPGA carriers have a slot to accept an FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) per VITA 57. http://www.ElectronicsProtectionMagazine.com
